changetrack is a program to monitor changes to files. If files are modified one day, and the machine starts working incorrectly some days later, changetrack can provide information on which files were modified, and help locate the problem. Changetrack will also allow recovery of the files from any stage.
Expresso Framework is an open standards-based J2EE architectural framework that allows the developer to concentrate on application logic. It is a library of extensible Java Server application framework components for creating database-driven Web applications based on open standards. Expresso integrates with Apache Jakarta Struts, which emphasizes presentation and application configuration, and bringing a powerful tag library to Expresso. Expresso adds capabilities for security, robust object-relational mapping, background job handling and scheduling, self-tests, logging integration, automated table manipulation, database connection pooling, email connectivity, event notification, error handling, caching, internationalization, XML automation, testing, registration objects, configuration management, workflow, automatic database maintenance, and a JSP tag library.
fireparse is an ADMLogger plugin that emails a report of all packets that have been logged by the kernel's packet filtering subsystem (iptables/netfilter or ipchains). The report includes source and destination ports, direction, logged packet count, matched rule, and fully resolved host names (if available). The email report can be formatted to plain text or a colored HTML table.
Firewall Log Daemon is a program written in C which will watch for ipchains or iptables log alerts in realtime. The program will start a small daemon process that parses and resolves firewall logs by reading a FIFO that syslog writes to. It can queue a batch of alerts and mail them to you, or can be used in a script to crunch an existing log file or data stream. It features hostname, port, protocol, and ICMP type/code lookup, with output formatted by a user-defined template.
iplog is a TCP/IP traffic logger. Currently, it is capable of logging TCP, UDP, and ICMP traffic. iplog is able to detect TCP port scans, TCP null scans, FIN scans, UDP and ICMP "smurf" attacks, bogus TCP flags, TCP SYN scans, TCP "Xmas" scans, ICMP ping floods, UDP scans, and IP fragment attacks. iplog is able to run in promiscuous mode and monitor traffic to all hosts on a network. iplog uses libpcap to read data from the network and can be ported to any system that supports pthreads and on which libpcap will function.
LineControl allows you to remotely control the Internet connection of a Linux masquerading server using multiple clients. It takes care with the number of clients using the connection and decides upon this number whether the connection should be up or down. The clients show the time the connection is up and throughput statistics. Different connection types are supported, such as analog modems, ISDN, or even cable modems and ADSL devices.
logsurfer is a log checking/auditing tool similar to swatch and logcheck but with the capability of handling multi-line messages and dynamically adapting the ruleset. It is written in portable C, well documented, fast, and flexible. It works on any textfile or stdin, can be run at intervals or continuously, and has timeouts and resource limits.
log_analysis is a log file analysis engine that extracts relevant data for any of the recognised log messages and produces a summary that is much easier to read. It can be configured to recognize entirely new log types. log_analysis natively understands about 100 different kinds of syslog messages, as well as sulog and wtmp messages for Linux, Solaris, and OpenBSD. It also has optional continuous monitoring capabilities, with both text and GUI modes.
Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
pflogsumm.pl is designed to provide an over-view of postfix activity, with just enough detail to give the administrator a "heads up" for potential trouble spots. Reports includes: Total number of messages and bytes; Hosts/Domains; senders and Recipients; per-hour traffic reports; summaries of warnings, fatal errors, and panics; and so on ...
